The pagoda, situated on Mount Dong near the ruins of Shentong Temple, is called Minor Longhu Pagoda because it bears carvings of dragons and tigers but is smaller than Longhu Pagoda at the foot of the mountain.
Its special structure can be said to be a combination of the pavilion and multi-eave styles. The pagoda is entirely sculptured out of stone. Its lower part is made up of two Sumeru pedestals; on top is a square chamber with a door in front. Carved in relief on both sides of the door are heavenly kings and above the door are dragons and tigers. The corner pillars of the chamber are carved with dragons. All the carvings are in high relief and appear vigorous and forceful. Above the chamber rise six levels of pent roofs (there used to be seven). The entire pagoda is more than three meters high.
An inscription dated 717 shows the pagoda is a relic of the Tang Dynasty.
